Abstract:

"Fifty years after living in a remote Pakistan village as a Peace Corps volunteer, Leslie Noyes Mass returns to discover a much-changed Pakistan-and a village that still remembers her. She deftly interweaves her experiences from 50 years ago with her current day story as a volunteer training female teachers. Leslie Mass captures the heart and the attention of the reader with her story of Pakistanis in 1962 and those of a new generation who are engaged in building a sustainable educational system for their country's forgotten children. Back to Pakistan A Fifty-Year Journey is a compelling look into a country as it goes from its infancy into the 21st century"--Provided by publisher.

"In 1962, Leslie Noyes was one of the first to answer the call of President Kennedy. She found herself in a remote village in Pakistan, 21 years old, and fresh from college graduation, with the only directive to "find something to do" in a Muslim village with no other Peace Corps volunteers, no other Westerners, no program, and scarce resources. Coming face to face with her naiveté youthful arrogance, and inexperience, she muddles her way through her first year of service, moves on to a larger city with other volunteers, then returns home to pursue a career as an educator. Forty-seven years later, she returns to Pakistan--a much changed woman to a much changed country. She intersperses the current-day tale with the journal entries from 1962, thereby providing a colorful and poignant comparison between a country in its infancy and a country in transition, and the woman of 21 with the woman of 68"--Provided by publisher.
